maryland arrested for contributing cell phones to tiny jewish communities, continues to sit in prison with no hope of release. a relationship with the united states must be earned. banishing political dissidents from their homeland hardly meets that test. this trick is surely no solace for gross or others in jail. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman yields back the balance of her time. for what purpose does the gentleman from florida rise? the gentleman is recognized. mr. diaz-balart: fidel castro showed himself on television this week to remind the world he's alive and in power despite having turned over titles to his public brother. what he does is he throws cuban patriots in the dungons and then when he starts feeling pressure he releases cuban patriots, gorts them from the country, expels them, gives them the choice. stay in the dungeon or be expelled from your country. to gain diplomatic and economic oxygen. he wants u.s. sanctions eliminated. and he wants the european common position which ties close relationship between cuba and europe

rundown to maryland or new jersey. they go somewhere else where they are not run by the states. if the state gets rid of it, we do away with the wages. a point on wages, by the way. the wages for state workers are very good. the benefits are excellent. you cannot get all of those benefits in private industry. there is a lot of cost and maintenance and upkeep for those. basically, they are getting some profit at the height maintenance cost. collect the taxes. we will get as much money as we would from the so-called profit from the liquor stores. and the unions -- the salary in the state is very good. benefits are excellent. but state government is inefficient. we probably have too many people to begin with. unions, by and large, do you ever notice when we talk about bankers and wall street and those fat cats, we always used the term, "agreed -- "greed?" but if you try to cut saiu by 1 cent, the greed comes out of their years and their eyes. it is amazing. host: we're down to the last minute or so. give us your take on the future of the keystone state economically. guest: there have been

, maryland, jason on the republican line. what do you think of what the chairman said? caller: i think it's wonderfully consistent with the republican party with michael steele at the helm. continued conflicting message between their own party. this party is in disarray. they need to get it together. michael steele has an array of things he should have been fired for and the reason he's not been fired, the only reason is because they're afraid to fire the black man they hired. that's plain and simple. host: here is bill kristol's letter, i think we have time, dear michael you are i know a patriot so i ask you to consider over this july fourth weekend doing an act of service for the country you love. resign as chairman of the republican party. your tenure has been marked by gaffes and embarmentse, but i for one have never made much attention to them and never thought they would matter much to the success of the causes and principles we share. but now you have said about the war in afghanistan speaking as r.n.c. chair, quote, keep in mind federal candidates that this is a war of obama's
